We were at the resort in 15 minutes without a hitch. Our check in was quick and relaxing with the hibiscus tea and neck massage. Our room was on the 6th...

My wife and I and are 4 month old made the trip down for a wedding and had a great time. Hose by the pool provided wonderful service and I highly recommend that you sit in his section. We were able to get some much needed vacation time and I would definitely go back.

We recently returned to the Grand Velas after not having visited for 5 years. This is one of our favorite places in Mexico and we were anxious to return.

This is the 3rd year on the same week that we have stayed at Grand Velas. This place is awesome. From arriving in the lobby to check in until you leave you can expect to be pampered during your stay. The facility is beautiful and the views spectacular. It is low key luxury at its best. Food is great at...

With your experience with us, you can be confident that each luxurious day is not an anomaly, but the norm.

My family recently stayed here and celebrated my Husband's 50th birthday and son's 18th birthday. They both had a wonderful time. We really appreciated that the evening restaurants had menus that specifically showed the gluten-free options as one of my son's has celiac disease. Unfortunately, the buffet does not specify their gluten free options. The service at the hotel was...

We came in April and had to come back for Thanksgiving. Much busier in the fall but the staff was still terrific and a free room upgrade was much appreciated after some poor service.
